Submissions for Special Issue

In the wake of the US elections this November, we are soliciting short essays from our alumnae who work or live abroad for a special issue of Global Impressions, “Reactions from Abroad to the US Election.”

Rather than the personal reflections we normally publish, for this issue we seek 300- to 700- word essays of your observations and descriptions of the reactions to the elections. How have the citizens and people in the country or the part of the world you live in reacted? What questions are they asking? What are the perceptions of the US and has the election modified them?

Submissions accepted until January 23, 2017.
